LeBron James return may impact 2016 Presidential Election

The return of LeBron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers is not only great for the city and the team but it could have ramifications on the entire country and the political spectrum of America.

CBS reporter Gregg Doyel writes: that the impact of LeBron James return of LeBron to the Cavaliers could result in the team making the NBA Finals, which would conflict with the 2016 Republican National Convention being held inside Quicken Loans Arena.

LeBron’s presence in Cleveland probably will force the Republican National Convention to delay its 2016 convention by three weeks, meaning three fewer weeks for the presumed GOP nominee to become the actual GOP nominee. Three fewer weeks of access to presidential campaign cash. Three fewer weeks of having the spotlight to himself.

This column is not written as a joke, either. This is really happening. LeBron James’ return to Cleveland is going to make its mark on the 2016 presidential election in one way or another, the least of which would be if the 2016 RNC Convention is hastily thrown together because the Cavaliers are in the NBA Finals, making Quicken Loans Arena off limits to the RNC until roughly a week before its preferred convention date of June 28.

That’s right, LeBron James returning to the Cavaliers could literally decide the next president of the Untied States, in a way, which goes to show just how big of a deal this signing is.
